As far as I can tell, one of the main benefits to developing in the NCAA is getting to play against opponents who are more physically-developed, even if the skills may not be top-notch.
Isn't it better to play against opponents with more skill? I mean, if you can learn to play against skilled players, then you should be able to adjust at the next level. IMO it's the skill plays that you want to learn to recognize and defend against. As for strength and speed you can always work on in the weight room by yourself anyway and become just as fast and strong as your opponents.
